Meet Ksenia Kazintseva.

Ksenia Kazintseva is a visionary leader and cultural producer in the arts and cultural education sector, serving as the Director of Izba Arts. Renowned for her dedication to promoting Central and Eastern European (CEE) cultural voices, Ksenia has contributed significantly to creating inclusive and safe spaces for underrepresented communities through her innovative arts programs and research.

Ksenia Kazintseva is a passionate cultural educator, project manager, and artist with nearly a decade of experience in production, curation, cultural policy, and public engagement. Originally from Moscow and now based in London, Ksenia's work bridges traditional folklore and contemporary practices, fostering an understanding of cultural identity and community connection.

As the CEO of Izba Arts, Ksenia has been instrumental in platforming CEE creatives and challenging the inherent shame that many Central and Eastern Europeans feel about their identities. She has developed and managed a wide range of festivals and arts education projects, including large-scale community festivals and public realm commissions. Her notable projects include an Arts Council England-funded exhibition by Phoebe Boswell and an extensive arts education initiative involving 51 schools and over 2,000 children, culminating in public shows in collaboration with the Royal College of Art.

Ksenia's expertise in strategic leadership and partnership-building has led to significant audience growth and increased engagement in the arts sector. Her skills in fundraising, event management, and education program development have secured substantial grant and donation income for creative projects, ensuring the sustainability and impact of her initiatives.

Throughout her career, Ksenia has worked with a diverse array of organizations, including charities, festivals, museums, galleries, publications, educational institutions, non-profits, and local governments. She has held key positions such as Arts Officer at Richmond and Wandsworth Councils, Producer at Battersea Arts Centre, and Education Coordinator at Saatchi Gallery. Additionally, Ksenia has contributed to the success of the Eastern European Art Week in London, an exclusive network uniting leading auction houses and cultural events to celebrate and promote CEE art.

Ksenia's creative practice spans painting, performance, and immersive installation, with a particular interest in the intersection of tradition and contemporary art. She believes that tradition serves as a unifying universal language, and its preservation is essential for fostering connection and spirituality in modern society.

Under Ksenia's leadership, Izba Arts has become a prominent platform for CEE cultural voices, offering consultancy services to evaluate and enhance engagement with CEE communities. Her work continues to address the intersectional challenges faced by CEE migrants, especially in light of recent geopolitical events such as Brexit and the war in Ukraine.

Ksenia Kazintseva's dedication to cultural education and community engagement has made her a pivotal figure in the arts, inspiring and empowering a new generation of creati for a more inclusive and interconnected world.
